The Australian National Folk Festival, Easter 2012
Held at Exhibition Park in Canberra

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well over 200 of us with as varied a range of lagerphones as could be imagined - many of which had been made in a lagerphone workshop as part of the Community Arts section.

It had been my intention to list all of us here with as many pictures as I could find but unfortunately the clipboard containing all my working papers has gone walkabout and at present writing - three weeks later - not yet turned up.    Graham Chalker the NFF secretary has assured me it is certainly 'somewhere' but not yet been able to find out where is that 'somewhere'.   So for the moment I can offer only a few items and would welcome anyone who did participate sending me at least their name and the number of their lagerphone - and photographs where those are available.   I could then start a sort of default list pending something fuller.

However one sad point I put in here in case anyone can help - one little boy, Nathan, and his dad made a lagerphone on the Friday and then when they came to collect it on Sunday evening for the big parade - that also had gone.    Nathan was one very disappointed little boy.   I understand it was a single pole with no cross board but had been labelled with Nathan's name.   Please - if you have collected a lagerphone which has, or might have had, Nathan's name on it could you send me an email (keiths@apex.net.au) and I will see if I can get it back to him.

And before we really start it would be only chivalrous of me to give a credit to the previous record holders - Brooweena in Queensland.

Bell and hooter(Sandra Nixon)

First up then Doug Richardson hammering away. Notice the red disk he is fitting - lagerphones are by no means confined to bottle tops ..... .... and then came a hooter and a bicycle bell ...... .... to reach the finished product.

Twosome Sunflower Sawing
Three more finished products
(Both Bob Bolton)
As a result of inadequate prefestival planning we ran out of materials but the stockcamp team went out foraging, came back with various fir boughs, and then loaned me this hand saw with which I was able to cut some more.
